The Blinded Veterans Association is the recipient of this year’s Bosma Community Partner Award for its contributions to the blind community of Indiana.

Based in Indianapolis for more than 100 years, Bosma is a nonprofit organization that provides training and employment for the blind and visually impaired.

The honor was presented at the annual Thomas C. Hasbrook Award Event hosted by the Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the organization. Coincidentally, Hasbrook was elected BVA National President in 1948. He served in that capacity for two years and was active in BVA for nearly 50 years despite highly active and successful careers in business, Indiana state and local politics, and community service. Hasbrook organized BVA’s Indiana Regional Group in the summer of 1946.

“The Blinded Veterans Association has been a committed partner who has helped to get the word out about not only the products but also the services available to Hoosier veterans with visual impairments,” said Bosma President and CEO Jeffrey Mittman.
